9:28am
9:29am
stuart: wait for it, the opening bell is coming. before we get there, let's go to chicago with larry levin. when are you moving? chicago is getting a lot like detroit. when are you moving? >> i am not moving anytime soon. detroit.is a lot different than it is run better. it is in trouble like every state in the nation, but no shape like detroit. you want to be here in the summer in chicago. if i moved, i would probably move in the winter. stuart: it is a friday morning and summer. i see people ripping up contracts behind you and chucking it behind you. larry, the fed is still all about when ben quits or reduces printing, isn't it? >> where the dallas fed president the last couple of days talk about how complicated
9:30am
of a situation this is. that is looking the market little bit but not a whole lot. the stock index trading bejg me still sitting at all-time highs. wwe're thinking but when is bernanke going to be talking about it. that is when the market will really get spooked and lose a lot of ground. stuart: thank you very much, indeed, out there in chicago. the opening bell is ringing. we expect the (to be lower, and it is. this will be a slow trading session, a thin market, thinly traded, but expecting 30 points down in the first few minutes. i want to know about priceline. the stock has been up by about a half this year. had it made a thousand dollars yet? nicole: so close to $1000. a stock that is so rich. $993. it is up 6.5%. they had a rise in reservations for rental cars, hotels much
9:31am
like what we saw from orbitz earlier in the week. we know hotels and vaaation packages are all good news. stuart: i hear the cheering behind you, don't know what that is about. nicole: it is for you. i am kidding. stuart: we will talk to you in just a second. how many times have we put blackberry on deathwatch? now reuters is reporting blackberry may be open to going private. blackberry declined any comment on that. nevertheless the stock is up 6%, $9 per share. first it was herbalife, no activist investor wants a new ceo at jcpenney in the next month or so. there is chaos in the boardroom and the infighting has gone completely public. nicole: it is down 3.5%, the board is so upset.
9:32am
basically stomping his foot saying he wants him out, who he supported. he wants the old ceo to take over as chairman as they search for a new ceo immediately and put one in place. stuart: it is a rotten time for chaos in the boardroom or anyplace else, back to the school shopping season. nicole: you're absolutely right. stuart: thank you very much, indeed. down 27 on the dow. i want to go back to priceline. john layfield in bermuda. you like it or not at that price? >> no, i don't at that price. i think people thought it was like the dotcom era. it is up again. this is a great company, they have a great marketing plan, but at that valuation right now, the
9:33am
stock has to be overpriced. stuart: $47 billion valuation on a travel company. a global marketplace, they have a chunk of it but that seems awfully high to me. it reminds me of 1999, the dotcom mania back then. >> i don't think anybody thought priceline would come down the way it did and come back like it did. it has just been phenomenal. they are getting killed on the airline part of the reservation. it is mainly hotels and rent a car. this is a commodity, cannot see this being a growth stock. even though it is a great company being overvalued here. stuart: let's see if we can keep the discussion at the federal reserve lively. i say the fed will keep on printing for the foreseeable future.
9:34am
they will print a whole lot more next year. fed watcher disagrees with me, what is your position on my predictions? >> i think probably the new fed chair. larry summers has a way to make everybody in the world he meets hate him. he has a lot of enemies. he is a smart man, but not very popular. i think you are right, stuart. you have midterm elections coming up, huge political pressure not to stop the fed buying. also, don't think bernanke wants the fed to go down. you see tapering worries in the market. there will be a readjustment. i don't think bernanke wants that on his watch. we will see bond buying and you are right. stuart: go back to the beach, i know that is where you are heading in a few from now. good stuff. >> great talking to you. stuart: three tickets split
9:35am
nearly $450 million in the latest powerball lottery when the winners take a lump sum payment, most of them do, the lottery immediately takes half off the top. each of the winning tickets is actually worth $86 million. and then along comes the tax meeting each winning $58 million. i still say it is a lousy deal. the minnesota store that sold a ticket will receive $50,000 commission and the others get $30,000 apiece. i could say i am not buying, but it is summer, so go ahead, waste your money if you wish. now the latest fox news poll on implementation of obamacare be at 57% say it is a joke, and they are not the only ones. the man who used to run mcdonald's and is now the president of thom and eddies. frequent guest on the program.
9:36am
we are eight weeks away from obamacare arriving on the doorstep, i want to know what you are doing with the company you now run to prepare for obamacare. >> our five restaurants are in chicago, frankly we are walking around in circles because we talk to small business people, talking to insurance people, nobody has a clear idea what this all means because this company is getting exemptions, that company is getting exemptions. we are deferring this, we are deferring that. we had a 4% tax come into play this month. who is getting insurance, who is not, we have formulas that are contradictory. if they worked more than 40 hours per week it is something else. so many rules and regulations, so many unknowns it is not a joke, it is a tragedy. i don't know what to do.
9:37am
stuart: i know somebody who runs a small business, and has something like 80 employees and are swamped by the paperwork. the guy i know says i am not going to do it, i will not, i will pay the fine and that is it. >> the simplest thing to do almost is to do nothing. health care benefits will be taxed for the first time ever. this will be an enormous tax increase for the american people. forget about the confusion for small businesses, i rely on a payroll service to do my payroll, i am depending on them to help me sort it out because i don't know what to do. they are interpreted differently, just try calling a helpline asking them to give you guidance, they don't know what they are doing either. with the midterm elections coming, it is a political football, no longer about health care, it is how you are going to get reelected or not get reelected. stuart: what about september and
9:38am
october, the fight over funding government and funding obamacare, which camp are you with? do you say defund obamacare no matter what the political fallout? are you in that camp? >> this is a train headed for a train wreck. we better slam on the brakes now. i don't care what it takes, the better suspend implementation until somebody understands what it is all about. the better delayed at least a year if not two years, and try to sort this whole mess out. don't fund it. stuart: would you shut down the government as a price of defunding obamacare? >> yes. obamacare will shut down the government anyways and we cannot afford this. stuart: you always tell it's precisely how you see it, and we like it. thank you for joining us, come again soon. >> you bet, let's keep the
9:39am
dialogue going. stuart: we welcome a promise you that. the dow industrial average place, it is friday morning, it is august 9, we do not expect a heavily traded market today, and we are not getting it, down 13 points, pretty much dead flat. we have been around that level for some time now. here's what i have for you at 10:00 eastern, the future of shopping. you showed me a suit, can walk around, open up the jacket. that kind of thing. >> you can change it, change the way it looks, look at how it might look on your body. stuart: nicole petallides will go shopping and is greeted by hologram. is this just a gimmick or is this really useful to the shopper? we will show it to you next
9:40am
hour. but i say this is the next steve jobs, innovating, going to take risk. he ignores wall street. this is important stuff, surely investors would like to see amazon stock go to the moon. after this. clients are always learning more to make their money do more. (ann) to help me plan my next move, i take scottrade's free, in-branch seminars... plus, their live webinars. i use daily market commentary to improve my strategy. and my local scottrade office guides my learning every step of the way. because ey know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.

[ male announcer ] how do you get your bounce? [ woman ] can't regret fresh.
9:44am
stuart: a moment ago did i say this was a go nowhere market? i was right, down a point, that is it. still above $1300 per ounce just $13.08 to be precise. ammon johns chief bought the "washington post" earlier this
9:45am
week $250 million. he is expanding his empire. i would say he is one of the greatest innovators. i say he is the next steve jobs. the guest on the show this morning. what is the difference? >> steve jobs is a wonderful marketer. products have been released that were pretty terrible and he comes out and says i have internet medications device. i also have a phone and music player. it is one device, it is the iphone. taking these products and turning it into one product. the brilliance of jeff bezos is amazon has had razor thin profitability. he is taking all of the money, reinvesting it into the genius of amazon, low-cost retailer, driving down the price of the marketplace and he plays the long ball. it would take eight years to develop the technology that came
9:46am
out last year. that is what blew everybody away. it took eight years, he did not care, he did it quietly. stuart: razor thin profit margins versus massive, thick profit margins at apple, there is a difference, i got that. attention to detail in the products, there is a similarity. crazy getting the right kind of glass for the front of the iphone and he does the same for the kindle. >> he does. but bezos place the long ball. you will see best buy goes out of distance when amazon flips the switch on same day delivery. i think when all these distribution centers are popping up in the major cities. steve jobs believes you ship a product, get it out of the door.
9:47am
everybody said this is crazy, we will use web apps? he refined it. finally a complete product. amazon believes in just keeping quiet, eight years, 10 years, does not matter, as long as it takes. i think the next thing from amazon is same-day delivery. when that happens, best buy will go out of business. why would you ever go to a best buy again to get the cable you need for your printer if you can go on amazon and by the time you get home from work it will be at your door. stuart: when do they flip the switch and say we will not be content with the razor thin margins anymore, we want abs of money. when they do that, if they do that, tell me when they will do that, this stock goes straight up. >> he has managed to convince
9:48am
investors they do not need major prophets, and investors are on board. they see the long game. a few sides a few years from now he will flip that switch i'm curious how sustainable that is. that is how they have been able to create incredible display technologies. flip that switch, how sustainable is it? does he make massive profits and flip it back to the strategy he has had since the '90s? if one of those companies that has confounded me, i didn't understand it. you really get to understand how brilliant jeff bezos is. steve jobs was very much the person you saw on television, you ask him a stupid question oftentimes he would just ignore it and walk away from you. he did that in public like private meetings.
9:49am
jeff bezos is always laughing, is a curious person. he will go to the conference in austin, texas, and sitting on panel discussions. he loves this stuff. video services. he will fly to austin himself and watch a panel discussion about it. stuart: they say he is the best ceo in america today and you probably agree with them, don't you? >> i think he is one of the best, absolutely. there are still a few brilliant folks out there. managing numbers and data at apple, nobody does it better than tim cook. stuart: stay tuned until the fall to see what apple does. do you think something big is coming? >> i think there are coupl a cof big things coming for apple. stuart: thank you very much
9:50am
indeed. a city manager in california getting a half million dollars per year. does that sound excessive? is it excessive? my take on that is next. right now, 7 years of music is being streamed.
9:51am
a quarter million tweeters are tweeting. and 900 million dollars are changing hands online. that's why hp built a new kind of server. one that's 80% smaller uses 89% less energy. and costs 77% less. it's called hp moonshot. and it'siving the internet the room it needs to grow. this&is gonna be big. hp moonshot.
9:52am
it's time to build a better enterprise. together.
9:53am
9:54am
stuart: here's a stock you have to watch today. is it going to touch $1000 per share? we're going to share it for you. obamacare, the lottery, obama on vacation. going to bring it on, top of the hour. owns and operates 40 restaurants on the east coast. his take on obama's part time nation. don't miss it. santa ana, california, has hired a city manager. the pay package over $500,000 per year for three years. here is my take.
9:55am
welcome to the power shift in city finance. out goes the old mayors and city worker unions, in comes the technocrats. you will see a lot more this be it and maybe outrageous such a generous package for small town in dire financial straits, but this shift to the technocrat is very necessary. me explain. for generations city mayors are being in bed with the managers they supposedly control. the unions help them with pay and benefits. that was the deal. and so many cases it was a long-term disaster. the disaster has arrived, detroit bankrupt and this morning "the new york times" tells us other local governments in michigan cannot borrow. they are hitting the financial brick wall. what santa ana is doing is buying a turnaround artist, abandoning the old failed model, working in a different
9:56am
environment. he is not elected, he is appointed. not dominated by unions. there will be a chorus of outrage about it. do the math, which is cheaper, what is more desirable. a half a million dollars per year for a fixer or deficit crisis and eventual bankruptcy? you do the math. [ male announc] surprise -- you're having triplets.
9:57am

10:00am
stuart: august 9, welcome to the second hour of "varney & company." monica is here. what does she think, defund obamacare no matter what? monica: yes. stuart: she is taking a hard line. and what is he doing with eight weeks to go until obamacare. how hard of a line is he going to take? you're taking a very harsh line in a fox paul you think imitation of obamacare is a joke. how about this, and app so companies can use your photos in their ads. nicole goes to the drugstore and meets the hologram woman. really? we show you the dow industrial average going nowhere on a very low volume day.
10:01am
but the big stock we have to get to his priceline. i want to know charles payne likes this thing at that price, charles. charles: at this price, no. i waited for it to go down. they had a cautious negative article on it. william shatner on the cover. the same guy, he is not afraid. when the stock went down, so we have to buy this thing on weakness. stuart: i don't do how much stock he has got if any. charles: he is still in the commercials though. this is all about international. the profits, this is nuts. the company $1.38 billion but
10:02am
the prophet $1.2 billion came from international. this is almost strictly international story. stuart: one more question about travel's bid what about the rival, orbitz. charles: i featured it twice. if anybody bought it from this show april, they would be up 100%. yesterday we talked about groupon, tesla. i gave it out at $6. listen, yesterday the number one stock in the entire market. it was better than tesla, groupon. your viewers are up 100% at this very moment. stuart: correction, they are our viewers. you are in this with me. charles: they are doing pretty well.
10:03am
stuart: nicole, want you to update us on the stock. is it noodles you want to update us on? the ceo said in july over june they saw slowing in the restaurant issue. they had a new forecast in wall street, they were writing they do not like that. 160% from the ipo price in june, cannot complain that the noodles are not working for them today. charles: the co zero of chipotle mexican grill, innovative menu, goes to show always innovation going on in this country everywhere. it is in restaurants, tire making, everything.
10:04am
stuart: noodles. monica is with us chomping at the bit. let me read it first. the city manager in california have hired phoenix city manager, they have agreed to pay a total compensation package of $558,000 in his first year. santa ana hit hard. i know it sounds like a lot of money, i say this is the way of the future bringing in a technocrat to run the city without the unions on your back. i think it is the lesser of two evils. bankruptcy would be a high evil. monica, she does not agree. go. monica: the state of california is bankrupt, it has no money. many are broke and have no money. to pay out this kind of salary
10:05am
for somebody to come in on the outset, i don't know what the track record is like. if he is a master turnaround artist. if he can turn this thing around, here's what i would argue. here is the thing, in this country you have to prove yourself before you get the big number. do you think he is worth $500,000? of taxpayer money. charles: they have a habit of electing crooks, jerks, stupid people all the time to run their government. california is the worse. monica: how about if they brought him in at 250, 300. after the first year can turn it around, and then they can build his salary.
10:06am
charles: he might be doing them a favor at half a million. monica: this amount of money of taxpayer dollars from a city going broke, it could change my mind. stuart: what was it, photos, crooks? >> why limit it to california? monica: illinois, new york. stuart: nicole, what have you got? nicole: it is cvent. we talked about ipos, we cannot leave this one out, it is soaring over 74% give or take. i have to keep watching it because it opened moments ago, news. when we talk about ipos, talk about how noodles was up 160%
10:07am
from its ipo, so cvent is received beautifully today. there you go, 76%. stuart: okay. i look at the latest fox news paul on the implementation of obamacare. 56% of respondents say it is a joke, so what does the chairman of apple metro say? he runs 40 applebee's in the new york metro area. people respond to that say they will have implantation of putting this thing in place is a joke. you run these restaurants, what are you doing as we approach eight weeks until obamacare? >> it is upside down. still unfolding. stuart: you don't know what rules you are drumming a dance to? >> they don't call it for
10:08am
obamacare, but a surcharge over certain thresholds of income and capital gains, et cetera, it is 3% now. that adds to a capital gains tax which everybody was fighting about with increasing capital gains anyway. relegated to paying for obamacare. what else is going to unfold? they are still fighting for 40 hour weeks to be a full-time employee, not a 30 hours week. when it gets implemented, we don't know what it is going to be. we are running our business, we are running our company. i think the pushback will be incredible when it starts to get implemented because you are 25 years old, never had health care in your life, it is not on the
10:09am
screen, i come to you and say you will be taxed $90. because you did not sign up for our health care program. we have to offer it, 3842 employees as of this second. we have to offer it to everybody, a full-time employee. we did that analysis and have about 800 full-time employees. we offer this to all 800 employees and they decide they don't want it. we suspect 3% to 5% will opt in. the other 95%, 97% opt out. all of a sudden they find themselves paying and $90 tax and never had in their life. try taking $90 out of somebody's pocket that makes 20,000, $25,000 per year to support a family of three. that is the first year.
10:10am
it elevates. stuart: it goes up from there? if they don't take the plan you are offering, $90 for the first year, and up from there. speak up leave it goes from 250, goes to 600. charles: here's what the obama administration is saying, why don't you raise their salaries? how come they're only getting $20,000? >> i would ask him to put my price increases so i could build new restaurants, hire more. i hired over 1000 people last year. i built for restaurants with the cost of $3 million plus per restaurant. i just open a restaurant that cost $4.25 million because of all of the zoning requirements.
10:11am
as the sandy issues came to light, more and more zoning requirements and changes happened. so i just built a restaurant for 200 people, i would ask the president to help me on my next construction site and i am happy to raise everybody's rate. stuart: you are a prominent proponent of obamacare. you don't like it, it is bad news. what has been the reaction to you out there in public when you said this kind of thing? >> i got 20,000 letters in the first two weeks, e-mails, they jammed our phone lines, we cannot make phone calls and it came from all over the country and we would be boycotted, i was physically threatened, on and on and on. but i'm the only one who did not cut anyone's hours, have hired people, have not fired people but large companies, i will not name them because i do not want them to be boycotted, have
10:12am
publicly said everything acclaimed on your show has come to pass. the reduced hours, they put people marginally full-time onto part-time and i don't think we have seen -- in my little micro is some of the economy, we will see pushback and things that ocheoccur that we can't possibly anticipate today. stuart: on the eight weeks away. >> eight weeks until it gets into play. it will not really happen for a year. they just put in place a british company is a matter of fact to vet to the people at will be eligible for it, not eligible for it. stuart: so the breadth are going to vet obamacare for america? you are a favorite guest on this program, the audience loves you. >> not all of them.
10:13am
i have the letters to prove it. stuart: that was organized. welcome on the program anytime. we appreciate it, sir. president obama holding a news conference this afternoon right before he leaves for vacation. i say he will run out the clock and then run out the door. let's see what a democrat thinks about that point of view. with the spark miles card from capital one,
